Dalam panelnya di New York Comic Con 2015, Cassandra Clare mengobrol soal sekuel dari The Mortal Instruments yaitu The Dark Artifices, dengan buku pertama berjudul Lady Midnight.
Kita sudah mengenal sedikit tokoh-tokoh dalam Lady Midnight seperti Emma Carstairs, Julian Blackthorn dan keluarga (muncul dalam TMI : City of Heavenly Fire), juga akan hadir tokoh-tokoh The Mortal Instruments seperti Jace dan Clary (cameo).
Terungkapnya cover Lady Midnight untuk pertama kalinya ini tidak biasa karena Harry Shum Jr. aka Magnus Bane yang mengantarkan edisi pertama hardback Lady Midnight ini ke acara.
Bagaimana menurutmu cover Lady Midnight? Emma Carstairs dan Cortana-nya tampak menakjubkan, setuju nggak? Lady Midnight akan terbit di Amerika Serikat tanggal 8 Maret 2016 dan kamu bisa pesan/preorder nanti di Twitter/Instagram @tokotmindo.
Sinopsis Lady Midnight
Glitz, glamours and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare's Dark Artifices series, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
It's been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses. Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across LA, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn't lead her in treacherous directions...
Making things even more complicated, Julian's brother Mark - who was captured by the faeries five years ago - has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind and they need the Shadowhunters' help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn't recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?
